    Money is no concern
    I have heard they have done terrible to hacked consoles including completely disable them and force you to buy a new console with losing all your digital games
    Say if they found usage of flash card when they found some files in your system provided by hackers or gateway.
    And also for wii u if they found home-brew v wii or other home-brew, or a chip or sign of chip installation even if the player remember to uninstall them.

    Well, I sent a 3ds with about 2000hrs of dstwo usage on it and ninty didn't do anything bad to it.
    The repair fee was ginormous though.

    Yeah, but what if that's gateway which you must install some files into the 3ds consule to get it work
    Or what if it's modchips like wiikey or a installation of homebrew which you cannot delete when it's disabled

    Run a DS game, and take out the SD card. There are now no traces of Gateway.

    there's a chance they will update the firmware.

    mind if I ask what's damaged on the system?

    Ah, if they don't need to turn it on then it shouldn't be a problem.

    You may also be able to repair it yourself by the way.
